Level 2 Furniture Making (ITO)

12FTEC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss C. Penfold

This course is a trade related course. Students continue to develop practical furniture making skills using hand and machine tools common to the trade. If students have taken the level 1 course it builds on those skills learnt. If students have not completed the Level 1 course, they are given the opportunity to through practice work to develop new skills and then build on them. Credits go towards a New Zealand Certificate in Furniture Making.

The units focus on health and safety,  accuracy in use of tools and machinery. Then quality of finish in a practical outcome is expected to be of a high standard. Independence within the workshop and confidence is a significant part of assessment.

This course prepares students for trade based apprenticeships. See the Competenz link below for more information.
